Legal Requirements For Getting Married In Jamaica

Visitors to Jamaica can be married 24 hours after arriving provided that prior application has been made for a marriage license.  Contact the Ministry of Justice, Jamaica to apply for a license.

The following requirements apply to getting married in Jamaica:

Proof of citizenship by providing a certified copy of the birth certificate of each party containing the father’s name.

Parent’s written consent if a party is under 18 years of age.

Proof of divorce if applicable (original certificate of divorce).

Certified copy of a death certificate for widows or widowers.

No blood test is required.

Only a marriage officer licensed in Jamaica can legally marry a couple. An officiant of the couple’s choice may conduct the ceremony, but a local marriage officer must be present to sign the marriage form and make the official marriage pronouncement. Marriage officers can also provide witnesses for the ceremony.
